Top somethings of 2014

There are probably a lot of things to put into lists to commemorate 2014, but mostly it’s been a year of music. So, top 10 albums of the year and top 5 shows attended this year, prompted by my friend Andrew. Spotify playlists at the end of the post, if ya wanna listen.


Allergic to life mixtape cover & tracklist

Allergic to Life | A summer mix

Not to cause you distress but – summer is almost over!!! And I’m feeling a┬álil bit less restless + ready to go from rolling down grassy hills to wandering thru corn fields. In the spirit of that seasonal transition, here is a late summer mixtape I made for my friend Madeline. Oh, a note on the name – when seasons change I get allergies. It sorta feels like I have them all the time … like maybe I’m allergic to life.

Note, what is most important is that I covered as much as I could with stickers. This is a mixtape, after all.

Roadtrip + summer adventure mix

I chose each and every one of these songs with the utmost love and care because these are my favorite songs for summer road trips – packed in a car with your favorite people, singing badly + loudly, with the wind whirling through your mess of dirty, campfire hair. I made this mix just for you and I hope you listen to it well and often. Also, if you do choose to actually put this on a tape (like I did), it is a perfect 45 minutes for side A. As for side B, maybe I’ll share that someday soon.

With light + love,
